Famous quotes containing the words head and/or anterior:

    I marvel thy master hath not eaten thee for a word, for thou art not so long by the head as honorificabilitudinitatibus.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    I find it more credible, since it is anterior information, that one man should know heaven, as the Chinese say, than that so many men should know the world.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
